Real Madrid eye Konoplyanka as Cristiano Ronaldo replacement


Real Madrid were very impressed with Yevhen Konoplyanka’s skills in last week’s La Liga clash against Sevilla, and they might already be planning a bid to sign the Ukraine international, according to reports.

Spanish press has revealed Los Blancos sports directors have added Konoplyanka to the list of future prospects they are watching closely. Many see the 26-year-old as the perfect replacement for Cristiano Ronado should the Portuguese decide to leave Madrid next summer, as they play in a similar position.

Konoplyanka has spent all his career at Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, the club where he grew up. Last season he became well known for his stunning performances in the Europa League that brought Dnipro to the final, where they lost against Sevilla.

The Andalusian club were amazed with the winger and made a huge effort to beat their competitors and end up signing him in the summer transfer market.

Konoplyanka has soon become a crucial player for Unai Emery, and he proved his value last Sunday against Real Madrid, being named the player of the match and leading his side to victory against Los Blancos.

His current market value, according to Transfermarkt, is 20 million euros, but Sevilla will surely request a higher amount to let him go.
